Muscle Shoals, for you "non-natives" (I think that's the PC term for Yankees these days), was/is a place to make music without distraction. Bands liked it because it was close to Memphis but didn't have the union rules (I think Keith Richards mentions this in his bio).

Skynyrd talks about "the swampers" in Sweet Home Alabama.
